Another Week in the Innovation Age #2
Hi Growers 🌱,
We live in the innovation age. A period where groundbreaking events happen all the time.
These Sunday round-ups are my way of distilling what I’ve gathered.
My last post was on 3/4. Don’t miss my weekly updates and join 100 ambitious and self-motivated champions by subscribing here:
LA Tech & Startup Events
Connecting with people in person is always best. If you’re ever considering whether to go to an event or not, always go and see what happens.
I had the privilege to attend some awesome events this week. More importantly, I got to meet some incredible people.
The first event I attended was hosted by M13, a venture fund based in LA that recently raised a $400M+ fund.
This event had some heavy hitters from the tech industry including Turner Novak who meme’d his way to raising a venture fund by gaining a 100K+ Twitter followers.
It also had people beyond the tech industry including Paris Hilton.
That’s my girlfriend TradingFemale posing with her. :)
The next event I attended was at Launch House, which is a mansion for entrepreneurs to live in for 30 days and build their companies.
I posted a video recap of my experience attending.
First Resonance recently completed a Series A round led by Craft Ventures.
The company has developed an automated tool to help companies manufacture parts and overcome supply chain issues.
Their software is helping hardware companies get the parts they need.
This is an interesting company I plan to track on.
Co-Founder YouTube Meet Up
The last meet-up I attended this week was organized by the co-founder of YouTube.
He posted a tweet about meeting people at the Santa Monica pier.
I showed up and met some incredible people.
Chad Hurley @Chad_HurleyGM! I’m heading to LA today… WHO WANTS TO PARTY? And by party, I mean grab a coffee in Santa Monica.
I haven’t invested in a private company since last year.
But in the last week alone, four private investment opportunities arose that I couldn’t pass down.
One I already invested.
And two more are in motion.
The fourth will hopefully happen this week.
I’m incredibly excited to share more details on these once I can.
One of my goals this month is to workout 25 days.
So far, I’ve worked out everyday this month.
Grow with Aidan Growth
As you may have seen, there are now 100 of us growing together.
This milestone makes me incredibly happy but I feel like we are just getting started.
All of you are awesome. Thank you.
I love hearing from you in the comments so if you ever feel compelled, please engage. :)
I’m thinking about starting a community for entrepreneurs, investors, and creators called Sprout.
It would be a slack channel. Just a place for us to hang out and chat. Drop me a note if this sounds interesting.
That’s all for now.
Thank you for reading! 🌱
